The breed of Formula 1 car introduced in 2022 was revolutionary as ground effects were harnessed for the first time since the 1980s.

Out went the old designs - which some drivers have said they preferred driving - for machines whose downforce is created by sucking the car to the track via strong 'Venturi tunnels' from the underbody.

One unintended consequence was that porpoising was back as well - with it being a very well-known side-effect of ground effect designs.

Fortunately for Red Bull, chief designer Adrian Newey was around in the the 1980s - on the sportscar and IndyCar scene - and so had prior knowledge of how to ace the design, and more pertinently, what to avoid.

It's no surprise then that Red Bull crushed all before them in 2022, but some changes are being made in 2023 to the technical regulations.

They certainly are not as wide-sweeping as those of 12 months ago, but still possess a huge step for teams to master with their new cars.
